SD U.S. Senate: Four Candidates, Four Debates

July 23, 2014, 5:59 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

SD U.S. Senate: Four Candidates, Four Debates

All four South Dakota U.S. Senate candidates will appear in a live hour-long debate on KELOLAND TV this fall.

The candidates have all formally accepted an invitation to discuss the issues on October 29 - less than a week before Election Day.

Former South Dakota Republican Governor Mike Rounds and Democratic small businessman Rick Weiland will appear side-by-side along with Independent candidates Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie to talk about the top issues facing the country and South Dakota.

So far the KELO-TV debate is one of only four forums all four candidates have agreed to attend.

Dakotafest Mitchell, SD August 20th 2:00 p.m. CDT

The candidates will square off for the first time on August 20 at Dakotafest in Mitchell. The debate is hosted by South Dakota State University.

South Dakota State Fair Huron, SD August 29th 10:00 a.m. CDT

The next week the candidates will discuss their differences at the State Fair on Friday August 29 on the Freedom Stage. The debate is hosted by the South Dakota Famers Union.

South Dakota Public Broadcasting Vermillion, SD October 23rd

As the election gets closer the four men running for the open U.S. Senate seat will take part in two statewide televised debates. One will be hosted by South Dakota Public Broadcasting on October 23 in Vermillion.

KELO-TV Sioux Falls, SD October 29th 7:00 p.m. CDT

The KELOLAND-TV debate on October 29 just days before the election.

The race is gaining national attention as Rounds and Weiland campaign alongside former U.S. Senator - turned Independent candidate - Larry Pressler and former state lawmaker Gordon Howie.

So, every joint appearance is likely to be a political draw as the campaign season ramps up.

KELOLAND-TV will also hold hour-long primetime forums with the candidates running for U.S. House and South Dakota Governor.
